    The reviews will answer your question. Not as good, not as comfortable, etc.

    Because they're knock-offs?

    They are probably the same.... I am sure Bose buys the cheap China seals and marks them way up!

    So inexpensive I might just buy a pair and report back!

    The $11 ones.
    I cannot tell a difference and neither can my wife.

    I think they took a little 'working in' b/c the first flight, I was getting some kind of intermittent hammering noise under the seal and I thought my engine was about to quit during a 2 hour flight but that has since passed and all is well. My copilot surely thought I was acting strange, but he is tolerant.
    The foam seems to rebound slightly faster when compressed by the finger.
    No word yet on longevity.
    Happy with purchase.

    Next time buy a genuine one and a fake one. Put the fake on the left ear and the genuine on the right ear and see if you can tell a difference.
